Ben Affleck Holds A Dark Secret In ‘The Accountant’


Ben Affleck plays Christian Wolff, an accountant who has more in common with numbers than people, and a dark secret.

With an unlikely mix that brings together a traditionally sedate line of work with an action adventure, ‘The Accountant’ is pretty descriptive in its title in so far as Ben Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a socially awkward mathematical genius who becomes embroiled in cooking the books for some of the world’s most dangerous underground criminal elements. As the authorities close in on his shady practice Wolff takes on a legitimate client where an accounts clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a significant discrepancy. As Wolff gets closer to the truth his dark secrets also begin to be found out. Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons and John Lithgow also star.

The Accountant hits U.S. cinemas in late October and U.K. screens in early November. Other regions should check IMDB for release dates.

Synopsis | Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
